Over the years, Holy Rosary has diligently worked to expand cardiology services, ensuring access to high-quality heart care for residents of eastern Montana. For optimal convenience, Holy Rosary now offers a continuum of care - stress testing, pacemaker implantation, and cardiac rehabilitation - close to home.
Outpatient Testing and Services
Cardiac testing, including intervention and diagnosis, is often an outpatient procedure. Among Holy Rosary's many outpatient services, are:
- Electrocardiogram (EKG)
- Exercise stress test
- Holter monitoring (ambulatory electrocardiogram)
- Computer imaging - computed tomography (CT)
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Dual-head nuclear camera
- Carotid artery ultrasound screening
To provide the most modern technologies, Holy Rosary implants the latest generation of pacemakers. These state-of-the-art devices treat slow and fast heart rhythms, and are designed to self-adjust issues. When pacemakers are implanted, subsequent care, in addition to quarterly check-ups, can be administered locally.
Holy Rosary refers patients requiring cardiac catheterization (such as angiography or stent placement) or heart bypass surgery to our sister facility, St. Vincent Healthcare, in Billings. Upon returning home, however, patients may access follow-up care and rehabilitation services at Holy Rosary.
Because cardiac rehabilitation is a key element of cardiac care, Holy Rosary offers a comprehensive program for patients of all levels. Programs are individually-tailored for appropriate exercise, education and risk reduction, as well as counseling and group support. Patients are encouraged to work at their own pace and take an active role in their recovery.
